Sounds like the graphics card failed. Are you able to test with another card?

it is integrated and he has tested with a dedicated...

 

@op: i would think the motherboard has given up. if you look at the capacitors on the mobo do they look anything like this?

Wait so it works with the integrated graphics but not with the dedicated, and when the computer started up all kinds of graphical anomalies occurred before it shutdown ...that screams vga dead to me :blink:
